Phantom Dust gets voice-chat improvements on Xbox One & Windows 10

The Xbox One and Windows 10 video game, Phantom Dust, just received its third update, this time aiming to improve the title’s multiplayer aspects. Here’s the patch notes:

  • In online multiplayer in the Tag Team Game Type each team now has their own private voice chat channel during game play rather than one group chat (except when player uses the Mind Reading skill to eavesdrop on opposing team).  Chat remains group chat in lobby and all other online play modes.
  • Users may now opt-out (or opt-in) for the in-game voice chat via Xbox Live Options menu, in-game pause menu during online play, or in Options in the online game lobby.

Phantom Dust is a free-to-play re-release of the classic Xbox game of the same name. Microsoft now owns the rights to the Phantom Dust IP and it’s thought that the company is testing for interest in the Phantom Dust property before investing in the production of a completely new entry in the series. A new Phantom Dust game was announced a few years ago but plans for it appear to have been put on hold for now.
